Wonderful overnight stay at Rocksalt Rooms. Great location, comfy bed, lovely bed linen, toiletries, mini hamper of drinks and fruit and fluffy towels. Delicious cooked breakfast in The Rocksalt restaurant including the best bacon and sausages I have ever tasted. We stayed on their Winter Warmer deal - Dinner, bed and breakfast at a very special price. Well worth a... More

Saturday 4th April 2015 We booked the Rocksalt rooms for an overnight stay & saw it overlooked the harbour with lovely views. When we arrived was surprised to learn the accomodation was over a fish & chip takeaway owned by the Rocksalt so strong smell of frying oil. The room itself was over priced no storage rustic looking & you... More

Loved the post industrial styling - bare brick, exposed plumbing - beaytifully and carefully done. Beds extremely comfortable - all in all great - But, no surfaces or storage or anywhere to... More

The local area is not very encouraging BUT the rooms and food at Rocksalt are pretty good. We were in the La-La room which was very small and the lack of bath mat meant that the shower soaked the floor making it very slippery. The bin was grubby and the shower control knob was broken - a little bit more... More

Many thanks for your review, all of your comments will be passed onto the team. The rooms are located in a working harbour so we understand the location comment, although we feel that adds a little to the charm of the rooms. We do hope you will try us again in the future. The Rocksalt Team More

Had a lovely stay at the Rocksalt Rooms and a lovely meal in the resturant. Bed was extremely comfortable had a great nights sleep. Room was cleaned to a high standard. Breakfast was okay, nice touch in a basket. Good job we had instructions on the whereabouts as it's easy missed if you don't know Folkestone. Would recommend for one... More

Our plans included a dinner at Rocksalt Restaurant so we decided to stay at rocksalt rooms in Folkestone too. I must say it was a more than pleasant stay. yes, the room is a bit cozy but not by UK Standards. The rate included a tastey continental breakfast, And the view from the window is beyond amazing.

Just four rooms - and I think we had the best one, named Valentine after a local fisherman - with harbour and town views. A really comfy bed, sleek decor and a great shower, it is quite a small room but compact rather than cramped. The special Sunday deal (three course Sunday lunch - well executed menu from Mark Sergeant,... More

I love these rooms and I think I've now stayed in all four of them. I'd recommend the cooked breakfast in the morning and thank heaven for good coffee in the room! Rainforest showers and rooms that smell of lavender ... pick a room with a view of the harbour

We stayed for a night in early January. The rooms are small, there's not really anywhere to hang your clothes, apart from a few pegs. So I can't imagine it would be ideal for a long stay. Having said that, for us, we were staying overnight so we could eat at the restaurant, it was fine. The rooms are decorated... More
